A new express train service now runs from Chengdu's Train Station, with stops at Dujiangyan(都江堰) and Qingchengshan (about 30 minutes). It is best to buy tickets the day before you depart, as they often sell out ahead of time, even on weekdays. Even if you don't buy tickets ahead, trains leaving Chengdu are not evenly spaced throughout the day so it's advisable to check the train schedule a day in advance. Train ticket costs ¥15.

You should get off at Qingchengshan station. after get out of the railway station, you'll need to take a short bus ride to reach the start of the Qingchengshan trails. Walk out of the train station to the left toward the bus station, generally following the crowd. Take bus 101 for ¥2 which takes you about 2 km from the entrance to the mountain. Or taking 102 will take you there too.
